Disassemble and reassemble Schwinn bicycle model 70 rear hub

I want to clean and lube a Schwinn bicycle single speed rear hub with coaster brake Bendix model 70.Also adjust brake. Other than brief text instruction I cannot find help on Web or in Library.

No real adjustment, just a good cleaning and new grease and it should work fine. The bendix part has a retarder band around it so the clutch mechanism will transfer between drive and brake. The brakes shoes can get worn, and need replacing. Not sure what is available these days for parts, but would assume the old trusty bendix would still have parts.

This is one of the easiest assemblies to work on so you should not have a problem. I will look for an online diagram to see if will help.

Third image in from the left looks like the bendix 70. That may help.

What is the condition of the old one, just poor brakes? I have years ago restored some that were pretty much totaled and in those cases just replaced the entire internal assembly. Not sure if that option is still available today, but it might be less expensive.

Glad to help,
Bud
